The story

As a market leader in their business area, our client wanted to find an optimal solution to their commercial needs whilst promoting the use of renewable energy and ensuring a resilient and reliable electricity supply. With best in class service at the core of their ethos, our client has invested heavily in EV fast charging infrastructure. With an eye on future expansion, our client was also cognisant of potential grid connection constraints, with the cost and time associated with modifying existing connections having the potential to delay future roll outs and impact overall project economics. As such, our client contacted the Cactos team to leverage our technical expertise and smart energy storage units to assist. After some initial discussions, we swiftly entered into an agreement to provide our Cactos One, which is now installed and fully operational at our clients premises, providing real time benefits 24/7.
